I am going to do a complete install of windows to try to erase a redirect issue. Is there anything I need to do other than start the install from the disk?

Depends...on the media which you have...and the system manufacturer and model.

Assuming you are booting to an OS cd, then no - just boot to it, select the option to format before install, then install. Then you need to download and install all drivers starting with the chipset driver. Then install a good AV and then go to Windows Update and download and install all updates (except for hw and driver updates, which should NEVER be obtained from Windows Update).

IŽd try to get rid of the "redirect issue" before starting from scratch. What exactly are the problems you encounter?
